"I was sober for two weeks and then I went back to shooting heroin again. My rock bottom was when I went out to my trash can that had been sitting on the side of the road for probably four days. I dug through my trash to find my needle so that I could shoot up again."    Shelby

“Straight Forward: The Truth About Addiction”

A new documentary targeting the opioid epidemic in Wisconsin is now available through WisconsinEye, the state’s public affairs cable network, in conjunction with addiction expert Skye Tikkanen and filmmaker Tony Wood.

Straight Forward: The Truth About Addiction features honest, in-depth interviews with young Wisconsinites fighting to recover their lives and futures from addictions that in most cases, involved opioids.

“Straightforward, peer-to-peer messaging has the greatest potential to impact large numbers of our young people, many of whom are at moderate to high risk of addiction,” Henkes said. “We hope this documentary is seen by every young person, and every adult involved with young people.”  READ THE FULL PRESS RELEASE
